Stelios Chalkitis was born in 1962 in Kalymnos, a small Greek island, where he lives and works. Having studied various academic disciplines, he claims "a writer is just a writer".
In an attempt to satisfy his existential needs, he has travelled to India, Tibet, the Himalayas, Mount Athos and elsewhere. He has written sociopolitical articles for various newspapers and is a fervent advocate of human rights, gender equality and the need to reexamine certainties of all kinds. He is also a frequent speaker at philosophical symposia and other events where he lectures on topics of a philosophical and psychological nature.
